Top 10 Tuesday: Books Set in a Fictional World

Welcome back to Top 10 Tuesday hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! I’m excited to be back this week with TTT.  It’s my favorite book blogger meme!

This week’s topic is Top Ten Books With X Setting (top ten books set near the beach, top ten book set in boarding school, top ten books set in England, etc).

I decided to feature books set in a fictional setting. To make it especially fun, I chose only books that have a setting (at least partially) outside of our world.

The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis // Narnia is one of my favorite fictional settings.

The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien // Another of my favorite fictional settings is Middle Earth.

Winnie the Pooh by A. A. Milne // The Hundred Acre Wood is a classic and darling setting.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum // Oz is a strange and fun setting for this classic story.

Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie // One of the great classic children’s settings is Neverland.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll // Wonderland is a classic and totally weird setting.

The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster // This is one of my favorite childhood books and a favorite little setting.

The Books of Bayern by Shannon Hale // Hale is a master world builder. I absolutely love the world of Bayern.

Princess Academy Series by Shannon Hale // Danland is another great world built by Hale.

The Land of Stories by Chris Colfer // I recently discovered this fun series set in the Land of Stories where all fairy tales actually take place.

On my TBR: Wildwood Dancing by Juliet Marillier // I am excited to experience this novel and it’s retelling of the 12 Dancing Princesses.

What are some of your favorite fictional settings?

  1. Ooooh I didn’t know Marillier had taken on the Dancing Princesses! I loved what she did with the Wild Swans (my favourite fairy tale), and the Dancing Princesses is also close to my heart. I’ll have to find that…
